Hi,
To start a CFD applications case. I import the geometry file (.agdb) to ANSYS Workbench. The ANSYS Workbench 15.0 was installed on Linux suse (11.4). When I open Meshing after importing the geometry file, there is a warning: "The shared license is currently not available for this application", as show in Figure 1. The console message show in Figure 2. However, all the other ANSYS software (DM, ICEM CFD, Fluent) are working correctly. I tried to find similar issue on the internet but I couldn't find something related to this question.
Hoping to get help.

Thank you very much.

ANSYS Workbench offers two licensing methods at Release 15.0:
  • Share a single license between applications (default) (shared mode)
  • Use a separate license for each application (separate mode)

Use the Set License Preferences for User option of the ANSLIC_ADMIN utility to specify which method to use and which licenses to use. You must specify the licensing method before starting an ANSYS Workbench session. If you access the Licensing Preferences dialog box from the ANSYS Workbench Tools menu, you will not be able to choose a licensing preference from there.


Single License Sharing

ANSYS Workbench allows you to work across multiple applications and workspaces in ANSYS Workbench while consuming only one of a single type of license per user per session. Using shared licensing, the active application holds the license, preventing other applications that are sharing that license from using it during that time. The application or operation requiring use of the license is called a concurrency event. For example, meshing and solving would each be a concurrency event.
Single license sharing allows you to progress through your analysis, from specifying engineering data through building or attaching a geometry, meshing, setup, solving, and finally, reviewing your results, all under the same license. The application holding the license must close or issue a PAUSE command, or receive an automatic release request to release the license and allow another application to use it. Licenses cannot be released while an application is actively performing a licensed operation (for example, an application cannot release a license in the middle of a solve operation; the license cannot be released until the solve operation is completed).
Single license sharing applies only to licenses of the same type (e.g., Mechanical). Choosing this option does not affect your ability to use licenses of different types simultaneously (e.g., Mechanical for one task and Fluid Dynamics for another).
Because this method is the default, you do not have to take any action to run this way.

Restrictions of Single License Sharing:
You cannot run two concurrency events simultaneously (for example, you cannot mesh one model and solve another simultaneously) with one license.
If you are using a license for one application, other applications may still not be able to share that license if those applications require capabilities not supported by the license. For example, you cannot share a Mechanical license with a Fluent application.


Separate Licenses

By using the separate licenses method, ANSYS Workbench requires a separate license for each application. By using this method, you can move freely between the many applications that you might require during an analysis in ANSYS Workbench, provided that you have sufficient licenses. You can leave each application running and easily move between them at any point during the analysis, even if one of the applications is actively using the license (such as during a solve process). The disadvantage to this method is that you could potentially consume many licenses.

Examples of Using Separate Licenses: You have two Mechanical licenses. When you open and mesh or solve a model in the Mechanical application, you consume one Mechanical license. If you link that Mechanical analysis to a Mechanical APDL system, you would consume a second Mechanical license when you launch the Mechanical APDL application, if you have not closed out of the Mechanical application. Neither of these licenses would then be available for other users until you closed out of one or both of the applications.
